Flyers Interested in Josh Harding

....And right now Fletcher’s in on a lot of different things, from Heatley to countless other things (lots of rumors, but I only report what I know from sources, not what’s just floating around) to talking with Toronto, Edmonton, Colorado, Detroit, St. Louis and Philly about Josh Harding.

Interesting... (found this on the main board)

IMO, this could be a solid pickup.

despite talk of harding having strong numbers because of minny's system, he is definitly one of the RFA goalies who has the potential to step into a starting role here, and has shown flashes of brilliance in the last 2 seasons as a backup! ...and he will hopefully be a cheaper option than going after lehtonen

I feel he was good due to his teams style of play, but he would be a good pickup as a backup and potential starter if Emery becomes a ****-sucker or doesn't resign after this year.

I have a feeling Emery is going to end up being a great signing.

Harding is one of the small handful of solid goalie possibilities.. Lehtonen, Ellis, Harding, Anderson.. thats about it for guys who have starter talent i think.

2nd tier after that group might be Conklin, Boucher, Raycroft, Clemmensen

+1 about why his numbers are so good, but I'd prefer Craig Anderson over Harding. He put up solid numbers (2.74 GAA with a very impressive .924 save %age)on a poor Florida team.

That 'poor' Florida team finished 6 points behind the 4th place Penguins.

If the rumours about a proposed Lupul for Bouwmeester are true, I imagine Harding will be a back-up plan.

True, and one of the reasons why was because of solid goaltending. While both Vokoun and Anderson's GAA were around 2.70 (comparable to Biron and Niittymaki), both of their save %ages were over .920 (both better than Biron and Niittymaki).

you guys know me, I've had Harding pencilled in for a long time now and if WE end up making a trade for him then I'd think it would be Lupul for Harding + pick (2nd or 3rd rnd pick in 2010). Obviously if we make a play for Boumeester that is centered around Lupul then we couldn't make that trade for Harding. However, reports now are out that FLA wants a guarrenteed 3rd rnd pick (not conditional) for the rights to J-Bo. They may want something else if he does sign (conditional 1st???) but I haven't heard about it yet.

Something like this would make a lot of sense to me:

To Min - Lupul
To Phi - Harding + 2010 3rd

To Fla - Carle + 09 3rd + conditional 2010 3rd (if J-Bo signs)
To Phi - J-Bo's rights + conditional 2010 1st or 2nd (compensation for Carle + 09 3rd if J-Bo doesn't sign)

Minny gets a scoring 1st/2nd line wnger
Fla gets a decent puck moving dman in Carle to replace J-Bo on the PP and two 3rds if he signs.
Philly gets a backup goalie who can be the starter next year (needs to be resignedas he's an RFA), they shed more than 5 mil in salary (Lupul + Carle - Hardings new price) ,the rights to J-Bo, and the get a 1st from Fla and keep their own 3rd in 2010 as compensation for Carle + 09 3rd if J-Bo doesn't sign.

Harding has been dominant at all levels. He had none of Minnesota's defensive style in the Dub or the AHL, and he kicked ass there, too.

Wild fans actually criticize their own players for poor play and lack of goal support for Harding when does get the start. That's why his win/loss record is his one subpar stat.

Do Want. I've been a fan of Harding since he started playing in the AHL.

A 2.68 GAA/.919 save %age (2nd year in Houston) is dominant?

If given the choice I'd rather take Anderson. Just my opinion.

I think the Wild would be privy to a Carle-for-Harding trade.

This Carle - Harding swap has me harder than Herbert at a pre school.

how is Harding a back-up plan for Bouwmeester? He's a goalie

If they can't move Lupul for Bouwmeester, the Flyers could move Lupul for Harding instead.

To clarify, RJ8812:

Plan A: move Lupul for the most prized (for the Flyers) free agent available.

Back-up plan: move Lupul for a back-up goaltender.

It's a back-up plan regarding the asset the Flyers are sending, not receiving.

On the main forum there is a link that Luongo has an extension in place. This would put Schneider into play as well. One of him or Harding with Emery this year would be a nice move if the price (no Montreal pun intended) is right.

I didn't see it posted anywhere, but this link indicates that the Flyers have expressed interest in Craig Anderson

I want the Flyers to go with a Detroit system of two solid goalies that don't break the bank. Emery and Harding could be a sick duo, but I'd be happy with Emery/Anderson that was there's a true #1 and a capable backup that can carry a load of games.

That's pretty damn good. He was 29-8 that season. His team was good (second in the division, lost in the 2nd round of the playoffs), but that is quite solid. The D on his team wasn't anything to write home about, either. They had Shawn Belle and Kurtis Foster each for less than 20 games and then a bunch of guys no one's ever heard of.
